Tribute for the Tribes


Tribute for the Tribes.

People often look upon them for their exoticism, debate about their perceptions on beauty and adopt characteristics of their dressing.  Inspired by the Karo Tribe’s distinctive body paint which they consider as part of their everyday ‘dress’, this collection was made to emphasize their exotic nature as well as their alternative clothing.

Paint textures was made to blend seamlessly with modern and quirky cuts, whilst the monochromatic colour palette strikes a contrast between the wearer and the clothing.  Utilising emboss silk screen techniques, the garments have an exceptional tactility.  As a form of appreciation, this is my tribute for the tribes.
